Got mine free with my trailer however would never pay for it, I have used 9 of 30 days and they constantly call to get me to buy more and upgrade but I will not be paying to upgrade prefer to visit CG's we like and will pay for the 20-30 days we camp per Year.

Here's a dumb question for ya. I know that they have dog bones for 30 to 50, so I assume they have one for 50 to 30? How do you handle a 50 amp TT with 30 amps. Just run 1 A/C and the rest is the same? Always wondered that?.....

Yes to 50 to 30, and yep, you just don't turn everything on. I flipped back and forth between which AC unit I had on, depending on where it was getting warm. We also put some bath towels (that I use as room darkening window coverings ) up to keep the heat out of the back bedroom once we had it cooled off.

I also have a tower fan that I run sometimes to move the air from the front to the back when we only have 30 amp.

Good question though!

Yes to the 50 to 30 adapter for the cord. One A/C and when using other high energy usage items, we turn off the A/C. It don't take long to figure out what not to use together when your only plugged into a 30 amp power supply. Seldom do we do just the 30 amps parks, but will have a lot of practice next year when we do a camping host stint in a State Park with only 30 amp service.

They were repairing a water main back in July when we were there, all the way back by the lake, the very last road.

They've been repairing broken water mains for the last 2 years. They repair one place and in a week or two, it breaks somewhere else. According to the plumber we talked to last Jan, they know the whole main line needs to be replaced, but won't spend the money. They would rather piecemeal it with patches.

Must be the same at Circle M in Lancaster we had no water for 8 hours one day while they did repairs

The worst thing about it in the long run it will probably cost them more then if they did it right in the first time.

Right now at Timothy Lake South and would like to say that this is a Outdoor World park and is the nicest one I have been at so far, nice wide streets a lot of site choices( although they could be wider) great staff and very well kept. Maybe this staff should give others TT parks lessons an how to run a campground. Beautiful area and quiet so quiet you could hear a cricket fart, as said by a friend.
This park is located near the De. Water Gap in the Poconos in Pa for any of you that might be interested
